The Osgoode Institute for Feminist Legal Studies and Canadian Journal of Women and the Law are pleased to invite participation in an Early Career Feminist Workshop to be held June 17, 2011 in Toronto.   Deadline for proposals is October 31, 2010.

Through this event, the IFLS and CJWL aim to provide a venue for feminist colleagues to come together and exchange ideas, and to create a unique mentorship opportunity which will encourage early career academics in the production of excellent scholarly work suitable for publication in the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law.

The workshop is open to pre-tenure scholars who are currently teaching in a Canadian university, whose research and writing engages with law (and society) and who bring feminist perspectives to bear on their work.

We welcome proposals from scholars working in law schools, law and society programs, sociology or criminology departments, and any other areas of the academy where law and feminism are being explored in a critical and rigorous way.

If your paper proposal is selected, you will be required to provide the paper by April 15 2011.  Each paper/scholar will be matched with a senior expert in the field.  This expert will lead our workshop conversation about the paper.
